Denis is a songwriter based in Ireland. He songs range across a number of different styles, including Country, Jazz, and Folk. His musical influences include Icons of earlier years such as Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Jimmy Webb, and also some modern day artists. Denis has had considerable success to date, his song "KINGDOM" has been chosen for use in a Nature Based Documentary, his song "Some Other Day" won an International Songwriting Competition, "Don't Let Go" was presented to Warner Music for possible Artist selection/recording. Say Goodbye" was recently considered for a new Album by a USA based R&B artist, and "Together For Christmas" was close to selection for release by a US Jazz Artist. A number of his songs have also received awards from various songwriting organizations, including Honorable Mention, Suggested Artist, and Runner-Up. But, as Denis says, at the end of the day it all about the Music, creating something you can be proud of.
Great News, Denis's Song "KINGDOM" has entered the FOLK Top Ten. Well Done.
